I’ve been hoping for a bit of rain for my big priced selection in this race. Burnt Sugar has some very good Ascot Handicap form in these types of races. He was 6th last year in the Wokingham of a mark of 106 and he was also 4th in this on soft ground the year before of a mark of 102. He went in for us in some style for us a couple of runs ago and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he gets involved here at a huge price of a mark of 88. Ascot course form is huge in these races and he has some of the best here. Let’s hope he is drawn on the right side.

One look at Mobsta’s form on soft puts him firmly in the picture here. Ha was a close 4th in this year’s Duke of Clipper around here when surrounded by Group 1 horses. 102 is certainly well within his range on soft ground and I fully expect him to be backed today. Move in time has been a horse if followed as well and he won’t be far away but I’m not sure of his value at only 8/1.

Right Touch is back down to a workable mark here on softer ground . That should bring him right in the firing line here at what looks a decent price. I think he will be finishing strong here and up to 20/1 is value.
